Palmerston Waterslide and Skate Park

The Palmerston Waterslide and Skate Park provides free access for kids of all ages to enjoy some great recreational activities.

Access to the park is a little tricky, there is no vehicle access directly from University Ave. As the map below shows, the turn off for the main car park is at the traffic lights on the corner of Yarrawonga Rd and Roystonea Ave.
Alternatively use the tunnel under University Ave to walk from the bus station or car parks along Chung Whah Tce.
